Week in Review - 5

We are fully into school now having started all subjects it has been a busy week. He loved the Mind benders book we started this week. This week he also started getting paper and markers out on his own to write, this is major progress for him. He learned to make his letters at age 3 and ever since then he has not wanted to practice handwriting. It is always a trouble spot for us. He thinks, I already know how to write I shouldn't have to do any more, he is a fast learner and repeating with practice not his favorite. I am very happy to see progress in his learning and willingness to practice.

He is enjoying the math facts we do everyday and is making his own problems for me to work(lol). We are also using Singapore Math 1b workbook and he is sailing through it. He loved the Magic School Bus experiment we did this week and can not wait to do more. I am happy with them and feel they are worth the price.

He read Magic Tree House books 5 and 6 this week. He loves these books and is getting to where instead of reading a few chapters he is trying to read the whole book at one time.

Thursday was a sick day, he had been up sick most of the night before and so we watched movies and played Wii. I did notice when playing Lego Star Wars he was reading his score instead of asking what it was. He can read the 10 thousands place not quite sure about reading the 100 thousands place. Amazing how progress can be seen anywhere.

This weekend Little Bit and Dad are making yogurt speakers from the site. I am not sure who is more excited him or Dad. Dad being an electrical engineer, loved the website and is ready to do most of the activities. With his favorite show being Deconstructed on the Science channel, I have no doubt one day I will find he has torn something apart just to look at it.


  1. Mine love the Magic Tree House books too! Looks like a good week! :)

  2. Looks like a great week! I never know if my kids or their dad are more excited about sciency stuff either!

  3. I have the same problem with Kaleb and his letters! "Moooom, I already knoooow how to write!!" lol

    Great week!!

  4. Sounds like fun! So sorry he was sick, though.

  5. It sounds like you had a great week. Isn't it fun watching their reading and writing take off? It also sounds like you have a fun experiment coming up this weekend. I hope you post about it next week.

  6. Sounds like a productive week, and Im looking forward to hearing how the experiment went.
